Sean McVay and the Rams’ other coaches reported for training camp at UC Irvine on Friday and the head coach kicked things off with a press conference. He shared some bad news about Travin Howard, who pulled his groin while training on his own.

McVay said Howard might be a candidate to land on the PUP (physically unable to perform) list, and he may also need surgery to repair the issue.

Being placed on the PUP list wouldn’t rule out Howard for any part of the season, but it would give him time to recover before eventually practicing and playing in preseason games. It would open up a roster spot for the Rams to bring someone else in until Howard is healthy.

Howard is currently penciled in as the No. 3 linebacker behind Bobby Wagner and Ernest Jones, and his playing time is expected to be limited anyway.
